Jack's Oyster House Reviews
Jack's is definitely an Albany tradition and has been in it's present location more than 75 years. Open for lunch and dinner, the wood panelled dining room and abundance of service (like the old days...you have waiters and busboys falling over each other to make sure you have want you need but not to the level of being annoying). A bar is connected to the restaurant portion if you wish to have a drink before/after your meal. The prices are very reasonable (figure about $20/person unless you want more expensive wines or the pricier entrees). Parking can be tight especially during the weekday at lunchtime. However a pay parking garage is just around the corner.
The food here really lives up to the hype. If you are looking for a seafood place that is above the typical crab shack, go here. Prices are high for entrees ($30-$50) but appetizers and drinks are ok.

Try their award winning soup. This place really does live up to its food reputation. I loved everything they served me.

Love this place!

Fantastic lunch spot. Crab cakes are great: crisp, tasty, spicy sauce on them. Very attentive service too and personalized greeting when you walk in.
This place is great. I ordered chicken pomodoro and also tried the salmon and scrod. Both were amazing. The waiters, especially Leon, are really nice and very proper. Elegant and a nice place to be :)
